New Event: Sky Lanterns (POSTPONED to Monday February 18th)
February 18 @ 7:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Due to poor weather, this event has been postponed to Monday February 18th.
Make a wish and watch it soar into the night sky!
Sky Lanterns are already popular across Asia, and now they’re here in Nagasaki for the first time in 2019.
Friday February 15th Monday February 18th, registrations to take part will begin at about 3:00PM at the park by the main gate of Dejima island. Only 300 lanterns will be available, so they might go quickly!
Then, from 7:30PM, all the lanterns will be released at once in a beautiful sea of light, carrying hundreds of hopes and wishes skyward.
Even if you don’t have time to line up for a lantern, why not come out and see this newest addition to the Nagasaki Lantern Festival?
